Appropriation, decontextualization, multiplication, systems, collecting, mapping, surveillance -- students investigate these and other conceptual practices as means for producing bodies of work. In looking at each other's work the class is concerned with developing and refining critical skills and vocabulary. Through weekly readings, slide presentation, exercises, and critique, the class attempts to locate each student's work within the context of these issues in order to provide a deeper understanding of the work and its relationship to contemporary visual culture. This course is about process (not product) and is designed for the student who wishes to pursue personal artistic expression in their work.
